- Wedding: May 2011
So maybe it’s just a bad day or what but look out world. I don’t know where to start. I am having a bridesmaid issue. Not with one but 3.
We are having 6 GM’s and 6 BM’s and 2 jr BM’s. 3 of my BM’s have been awesome. I haven’t asked anyone to do anything but the 3 that have been awesome have offered advice and actually shown interest in the wedding and make an effort to hang out. The other 3, not so much. I planned an appt to go look at BM’s dresses and decide on one. I made this 4 weeks ago and we are suppose to go Saturday. I emailed everyone and only got 2 responses. I then get one more response a week later. The other 3 I had to hunt down and call a bunch to get an answer. One first gave me the reason of her nephew’s bday and wasnt sure if she could, I was fine with that. Then when I see her out on the weekend I asked her if she had found out if she was able to go or not, she said no, we are boating that day. Ok. WTH! Then another one has 2 kids who are younger and do not listen and are all over the place. At first she was going to have her hubby watch their kids and now she wants to bring them. OK. But I would have preferred she didn’t because we will be busy trying on dresses not running after kids. My girls are older and will be there but I am not asking them or expecting them to watch this girls kids when she could have gotten a sitter for a couple hours. The other Bridesmaid or Best Man never answers her phone or calls me back. I literally have to call her 4-5 times before I actually talk to her. I have asked her several times if she is going this Saturday and she said she might be able to but won’t know for sure till Saturday because she needs to find someone to watch her kids. Wouldn’t she have made arrangements prior to now?? Plus, her 2 older kids are old enough to stay home alone and watch the 3 year old for a couple hours. This girl also expects me to pick her up and take her. It wouldn’t be a problem if I was going to be leaving from my house, but I am not. I will be about 10 minutes from the salon that morning and didn’t want to have to drive 45 minutes back to town to get her and then 45 minutes back to the salon and then 45 minutes back to town to take her home and then 45 minutes back to where I will be the rest of the day.
I know I sound awful and I don’t mean to be but I just don’t want to do this anymore. I thought wedding planning was a happy time and this sucks. I wanted them to be part of my wedding but they obviously don’t act like they want to be.
